GamePro's Gears of War 2 coverage 'complete nonsense'

I suppose a great way to sell magazines would be to make wild claims on your cover about sequels to blockbuster games. It seems that's what GamePro did, when they decided to put "Gears of War 2" right underneath the words "special report" on the cover of their next magazine.

Images of the cover appeared on the Internet a few days ago, causing wild speculation and unnecessary excitement about an impending announcement. In a post on the official Epic Games forums, President Mark Rein calls the long-running videogame magazine out.

"It is complete nonsense," he writes. "We have not announced a sequel to Gears of War to GamePro or anyone else for that matter."

His response is followed by a bunch of people complaining about Epic's lack of Gears of War PC support. Apparently, that game needs a patch, but I wouldn't know -- I played Gears of War on the Xbox 360 when it came out -- what, twelve years ago?

So we all know that the game is due for a sequel, and there have been enough rumors pointing to us seeing a sequel sometime this year. But you're certainly not going to hear about it in the next issue of GamePro. Stay tuned for tomorrow's special Destructoid report on Unreal Tournament 9 and Madden NFL 2010.
